Dreams do come true, and this elegant southern wedding with a modern twist was a perfect combination of Beth & Brian’s personalities. These two love birds decided to say their “I Do’s” underneath the beautiful oak trees at Legare Waring House at Charlestowne Landing this past September, and we were honored to be a part of their special day. Before they tied the knot in the lowcountry, though, they began their magical journey almost ten years ago in Dallas.
“I had moved to Dallas to go to college at SMU and Brian had also recently moved to Dallas, for a new job. We met through mutual friends and moved in together 3 months later,” Beth said. “Then, ten years later, Brian was in Charleston consulting for a company who would eventually hire him. I was visiting Charleston for the weekend to decide if I was willing to move. Brian took me to an incredible dinner at Peninsula Grill with a full moon lit walk to the Pineapple fountain and the Battery afterwards. He made me wait until we were back in our hotel room for a sweet, romantic, and private proposal!”
We loved designing the details for this wedding, and couldn’t have done it without all of our vendors. Beth wanted to greet her guest to their reception through a beautiful floral garland arch, designed by Loluma, and with that thought we took it above and beyond with the invitation suite, designed by Hatchcove Designs.
From there, everywhere you turned there was a unique design element and surprise. With the sumptuous selections of cream garden roses, floribunda roses, burgundy dahlias, seasonal wildflowers, and asparagus ferns Legare Waring’s trademark center fountain was breathtaking, and Beth’s favorite detail.
“My favorite design element was the fountain. It was so lush and romantic, and made the perfect centerpiece for the reception. The entire venue was so gorgeous and the entryway/archway to the reception space was beautiful and really brought everything together,” she said. “We could not have imagined this day any different because it was a true display of the life Brian and I have built together. With many of our guests visiting Charleston for the first time, and coming together with all of our friends we have here, it really felt like a celebration of the ten years we have spent together.”
The gifted Kaitlin Poirier was on hand to capture every moment, which all flew by like the first fall leaves from the trees of Charlestowne Landing. The day felt like Beth & Brian’s ten-year relationship summed up: an otherworldly blur of emotions. Until, that is, the one moment where time stood still.
“The most memorable part of the day for me was the first dance,” Beth explained. “It felt like the rest of the day flew by, but the first dance allowed us to just pause, look at each other, and really take in this beautiful moment.”
